Yarn Notes:

The Wave by We Are Knitters is a bulky thick and thin yarn with the thinnest parts narrowing to about a lightweight/sport.

If you can’t find (or don’t like) thick and thin yarn, try and find a slightly textured yarn. Keep in mind that anytime you use a different yarn (other than the suggested yarn) in a pattern, you will end up with a different result. Be sure your gauge matches the pattern and adjust your hook or stitch count accordingly.

The hat is worked in a rectangle, then sewn together, so even with a different yarn/hook combo you can make the hat by chaining the length then working rows until it’s the correct size. Just be prepared to do a little experimenting/fiddling.

Have fun shopping or stash diving! Just please don’t bop me in the head (like little Bunny Foo-Foo) if your yarn of choice doesn’t work as well as you’d hoped! haha:)

Hope to see you there!

Abbey
